"So how can I find out what MeijerG[{{1, 1}, {1/2}},    {{1, 1}, {0,
0, 0}}, r, 1/2]? really is"
This can mean almost every thing, is it a
philosophical question? And the answer would be
"It is nothing real, it is  pure fiction."

The only way to simplify MeijerG[] would involve the usage
of the relations you can find in the pages I have posted.

And Mathematica will probably not apply all the transformations
listed in the pages. Especial if you wish to get
a special form of the output, Mathematica will not able to find it.

It is always hard to force Mathematica to bring the result in a special
form, but it is impossible if we don't know what you want.

Jens
